Description

High Solids Primer/Surfacer/Filler

EMTECH HSF5000 is a waterborne high solids primer, surfacer and filler specifically formulated to be used on open grained wood, MDF and engineered veneer to help provide a smooth, non-textured appearance to the base substrate. HSF5000 water-based primer, surfacer and filler is available in a neutral color base for bright finishing, or in pigmented white and grey bases for use underneath pigmented topcoats. The use of HSF5000 water-based primer/surfacer/filler reduces the total number of intermediate sealer and topcoat applications required to obtain a final, highbuild finish. HSF5000 high solids primer, surfacer and filler can be cross-linked with 5% CL100 CrossLinker to provide increased sub-level hardness and adhesion when used on difficult to finish surfaces.

The fast drying nature of HSF5000 water-based primer, surfacer and filler allows topcoats to be applied in as little as 2 hours after the last coat of HSF5000 has been dry sanded.

 
Neutral Base Version (HSF51xx): Prepare surface by sanding with 220-grit sandpaper. Remove all dust, oil and solvent from the surface. Remove all dust, oil and solvent from the surface with a lint-free cloth lightly dampened with water and denatured alcohol mixed 50:50. Apply pre-stain sealer and /or wood stain as desired, prior to grain filling, as required by finishing schedule. HSF5000 Neutral Base can be tinted with water-soluble dyes and/or pigments to create a ground color for natural grain color enhancement. Spray, brush or roll-apply HSF5000 onto prepared substrate. Apply HSF5000 at a 2-3mil wet film thickness per coat. Allow each coat air dry for a minimum of 1 hour at room temperature. Sand each coat as described above with 320-grit sandpaper to remove surface defects. Apply a minimum of 2 coats to obtain a filled grain effect. (Note: Different wood species require more/fewer coats of filler. Make a test panel to determine the exact number of coats of HSF5000 needed.) Repeat if necessary to complete fill in negative grain. Allow 2 hours drying time between each filler application to ensure proper drying of underlying filler. Re-apply stain or dye if required to even off color tone. Pigmented Base Version (HSF52xx & HSF53xx): All surfaces to be finished must be clean, dry and free of excess contamination. Remove all dust, oil and solvent from the surface with a lint-free cloth lightly dampened with water and denatured alcohol mixed 50:50. For MDF priming, sand surface with 180-grit aluminum oxide sandpaper to improve adhesion of primer. Apply the first of primer reduced with water 10-20%, at 2-3 mils wet. Allow the first coat to dry for a minimum of 60 minutes. Sand first coat of reduced HSF5000 with 320-grit sandpaper to remove surface defects. Apply second coat of pigmented HSF5000 to obtain complete hiding of substrate.

    I have been using this on veneers and restoring old funiture. It is a great product. Easy to sand. Just keep adding coats until you get the desired fill. You can get it glass smooth or leave some detail. I always let the last coat dry over night or longer just to make sure the water is out before top coating. I have added about 5% cross link to give a litte firmer undercoat for the CV. Since I use a mini hvlp with a 1 mm nozzle I add a little water to help it atomize and flow out.

    this is the third time I have used his product, and have had the best outcome this time. Jeff worked with me previously to get threw my problems with inadequate equipment and still got a sellable product. This time I actually enjoyed the experience. this filler was used on hard maple doors, drawer fronts and face frames with Baltic birch ply for main carcass. On a 84″ sewing cabinet with a 48″x84″ fold out top surface. which needed to be flat and smooth.. first coat was rough but sanded out well, i think the water base product raises the grain which gets sanded back in the first sanding, the final coat laid great with very little sanding needed, basically just a a scuff sand to get any nubs. Am pleased with outcome and will recommend this product to others, and Jeff’s customer service.
